Chavo Guerrero Interview

NZPWI had the opportunity to speak to Chavo Guerrero this past Thursday in the lead-up to TNA’s biggest pay-per-view of the year, Bound For Glory. Born into the legendary Guerrero family, Chavo Guerrero Jr – son of Chavo Sr, grandson of Gory Guerrero – has wrestling in his blood from...

Samoa Joe Interview

Since its introduction last year, the Bound For Glory Series has quickly become one of the most exciting parts of the TNA calendar year. This year’s series has been of no more importance than to Samoa Joe, who has chalked up 68 points – second only to James Storm –...

Miss Tessmacher Interview

For many of today’s wrestlers, watching the larger-than-life characters of the 80s and 90s as a child was what inspired them to dedicate their lives to pro wrestling. Yet it wasn’t until Miss Tessmacher held the Knockouts Tag Team Championships with Tara that she knew what she wanted to do....

Dixie Carter Interview

Australia and New Zealand are TNA’s top new market touring priorities, says TNA president Dixie Carter. “I know we’re working on it – we’ve been looking for buildings, dates, times, all of that, so, it’s not a pipe dream, it’s going to happen, and if I have anything to do...

Bobby Roode Interview

Bobby Roode defends the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against James Storm inside a steel cage at Lockdown today. Roode set the wheels in motion for the match when he attacked Storm with a beer bottle on Impact Wrestling six months ago, but things have been brewing between him and Storm...
